Solve this problem in your notes: Ling’s Hallway is 10 feet long and 4 feet wide. He paid \$200 to tile his hallway floor. How much did Ling pay per square foot for the tile?

Review Lesson 1 (Lesson 0-1)
Plan for Problem Solving

What steps did you take in solving the bellringer?

Four-Step Problem-Solving Plan
Understand the problem Plan the solution Solve the Problem Check the Solution

1. Understand the Problem
Read the problem carefully and explore what the problem is about Identify what information is given. (Underline) Identify what you need to find. (Circle) Ling’s Hallway is 10 feet long and 4 feet wide. He paid \$200 to tile his hallway floor. How much did Ling pay per square foot for the tile?

2. Plan the Solution Write an equation
Chose a variable to represent one of the unspecified numbers in the problem This is called defining a variable Ex: times the cost per square foot equals x f = Ling’s Hallway is 10 feet long and 4 feet wide. He paid \$200 to tile his hallway floor. How much did Ling pay per square foot for the tile?

3. Solve the Problem Use the strategy you chose in Step 2 to solve the problem. Ex: 40 x f = 200 “What number times 40 is 200?” f = 5 The tile cost \$5 per square foot

4. Check the Solution Does your answer make sense?
Estimate to see if you got an answer that is close Does it fit the information in the problem? Ex: If the tile costs \$5 per square foot, then 40 square feet of tile costs 5 x 40 or \$200. The answer makes sense.

Lesson 0-2 Real Numbers

Vocab Positive numbers: values greater than 0
1, 2, 3, 4,…. Negative numbers: values less than 0 -1, -2, -3, -4,…

Vocab Natural numbers: 1, 2, 3, … Whole numbers: 0, 1, 2, 3, …
Integers: …, -3, -2, -1, 0, 1, 2, 3, …

Classify these numbers
Name the set or sets of numbers to which each real number belongs. Ex: 4 Natural Whole Integer Ex: -5 Natural Whole Integer Ex: 0 Natural Whole Integer

Rational Numbers Numbers that can be expressed in the form a/b, where a and b are both integers and b does not equal 0 Square root: one of two equal factors of a number Ex: 64 Perfect Square: the square roots are rational numbers

Irrational Numbers Numbers that cannot be expressed as terminating or repeating decimals Ex: ….. Think of another example of an irrational number
